CommentBacterial that synthesize a cell wall of peptidoglycan (murein) generally have several transglycosylases and transpeptidases for the task. This family consists of a particular bifunctional transglycosylase/transpeptidase in E. coli and other Proteobacteria, designated penicillin-binding protein 1B.
